Good at what they do not lasting well
on 23 June 2015
I got these to go walking on Dartmoor which is notoriously marshy even in the summer months. I have very wide feet and so finding walking boots and shoes that don't kill me nigh on impossible. So I took a punt on these walking sandals. They actually worked out pretty well. I wore them with wool socks and although I got wet feet, they were still warm and dried off very quickly. The grip was surprisingly good considering they're not exactly deep cleats or spikes - they are especially sticky on rocks but less good on wet grass slopes. The fitting system is very simple - they're hard to pull on but then they stay on and you just pull an shockcord to tighten them.
This is where they went downhill unfortunately. 5 months on, and with only maybe 10 outings, they've started to come apart. The stitching around the heel has failed completely and I'm guessing it's because of the strain of pulling them over the heel pulling at that stiching. When you pay like £80 for shoes I expect at least a year out of them.
